It’s been one year since we launched our first three rug collections with Loloi

And we’re thrilled to introduce you to Polly – our new rug AND pillow collection. Inspired, of course, by our youngest daughter Polly. These rugs can be youthful or mature. They are staple geometrics in all the best neutrals. When it comes to the design, we considered every detail. This means obsessing over colors and relying on Loloi to create intricate textures made to last. The result? Beautifully-designed rugs that look great now and later. A high-end demeanor at an affordable price, all sold at Wayfair, Rugs Direct, and Amazon.

Hello Polly



Our last launch was such an incredible experience thanks to all of you, that we immediately turned around and said “that was fun, let’s do it again!” And here we are one year later, with a whole new collection, including 8 rugs, and 7 pillows! The rugs come in 8 sizes (for now at least), including smaller sizes for doorway entrances, large area rugs, and runners! These rugs are unlike any of our other collections, but are meant to pair effortlessly with them. The perfect compliment to our Jules, Alice, and Rosemarie collections! (More on mixing and matching tomorrow!)

The Polly rugs are all hand-tufted of 70% wool and 30% jute pile. I’m talking thick, substantial quality that’s super soft under foot-which is everything I want in a rug! Striking, gridded designs, toned down by a neutral color palette, Polly is a timeless choice for any room. A fresh take on a modern, yet traditional look. Another thing to know about these Polly rugs is that they are all GoodWeave certified, which means you can rest assured that they are made ethically and support weavers’ communities.


Straw Ivory in Polly’s Room


How magical does this rug feel in her room, with the storybook wallpaper? The hand-tufted wool and jute, combined with this colorway, gives the look of a jute rug, but without the scratchiness. It’s so comfy and the warm honey color of this really sings well with the wallpaper doesn’t it??

Slate Ivory in Our Living Room


Our Living Room gets a good amount of foot traffic so it made sense to roll out a Polly. These hand-tufted rugs are durable enough to withstand some wear, while also providing an easy cleaning experience. The Slate Ivory is such a perfect rug to go in our Pigeon painted living room, because similar to the paint, it’s kind of a chameleon gray. Up close you can see the blue, cream, tan and warm gray tones that are all woven together to make this rug–it’s really fresh and neutral.

Ivory Natural in Our Bedroom


The show-stopper Ivory Natural styled in our bedroom with the white walls, white bedding, and chandelier looks so high-end and classy. Waking up and stepping bare-foot onto this rug is the perfect start to my day. At some point, this might get swapped out for a Jules to add some color, especially since we now have a Polly in our living room, which is the neighboring room.

Pillows in the Window Nook + Antique Mist

6 of these pillows are woven, and one is printed. Can you guess which one?? They’re all my favorite and they actually include the inserts, which you don’t see often!

Antique Mist in Kelsi’s Bedroom

My dear friend Kelsi of Fullm House has the antique mist rug and ivory black pillow, and they were so good I had to show you! I had the funnest time styling her bedroom for her (yes, styling is what I do for fun, even on vacation). I snapped a few photos on my phone to share with you.

So happy to have you along the ride with us and we can’t WAIT to see them in your homes!

    What sized rug is in Polly’s room? Thank you :-) love them!!

  2. Rebecca says:

    Thank you for this! I love loloi rugs and have a collection of them, including a Jules. I’ve been waiting to find a rug for a dining area that adjoins two other living spaces with vintage/floral type rugs and needed a contemporary, timeless, neutral, geometric to break up yet compliment the others.This was the hole in the line up of options from loloi, which you just filled beautifully!

  3. Lola says:

    Congratulations! Could not love these more. Exactly what I’ve been dreaming of for my living room and haven’t managed to find anywhere. Only problem is I need 12×15. 😭

  4. Rebekah Olson says:

    So gorgeous. Love them ALL so much. Already bought two pillows- completely giddy at the moment! Question- I know you said inserts included in your post, but Amazon is listing as cover only. Is that true?

    • All of the pillows come with an insert–but I’m going to double check with Loloi to see if Amazon is for some reason different? (I can’t imagine)

      • Rebekah Olson says:

        Thank you! Now, if I can only decide on a rug before they’re gone! Obsessing over carpet choices…not a bad Monday at all!

  5. Victoria says:

    Congratulations, what a beautiful collection! I hope someday your rugs could be offered as a square rug. I’ve been looking for a quality but affordable 8’x8′ rug for my dining room for months!

  6. Becky says:

    Absolutely gorgeous! On side note, I love the little nook where is that located in your home? Your home is just beautiful.

looking for inspiration? 

There was a 10-year-period where everyone (including me) was doing black or almost-black rooms or walls. These days, we want something moody and romantic, but we want warmth back in our lives. We want the “grown-up” version of that look. If you are craving a rich, moody paint color that’s a warm, inviting neutral, then […]
